Paper Abstract

Remote telescope control is significant important for the astronomical site testing. Basing on ASCOM standard, a prototype of remote telescope control system has been implemented. In this paper, the details of the system design, both server end and client end, are introduced. We tested the prototype on a narrow-band dial-up networking and controlled a real remote telescope successfully. The result indicates that it is effective to control remote telescope and other devices with ASCOM.
